," my name is jon stewart. big show. big, big, big, big, big show. our guests tonight, we have on tonight's program pakistan's former president pervez musharraf. my guess is we'll have a delightful beverage and a lovely conversation. (cheers and applause) so let's begin tonight with the on going "news of the world" phone hacking scandal. to get you caught up, a seemingly simple story. ma and pa owned newspaper hacking into a murdered little girl's phone and... (laughter). ... paying the police to cover it up. has unfortunately turned ugly. (laughter) as of now, london's two top policemen at scotland yard let's call them officer blu rotton has resigned. andrew colton has been arrested and sunday tragically authorities arrested poor mrs. weasley. (laughter) wait, no that's not mrs. weasley. sorry, tragically, authorities arrested the guy from simply red. yeah, that's it. actually, arrested was rebekah brooks, the woman who ran "news of the world" during the worst of-- as the british call them-- the troubles. (laughter) brooks had already resigned her post friday, ostensibly to sp
enough to get a compromise and to get it through both houses. that remains a big question this afternoon, and -- and it doesn't seem like we've got a clear answer on really where that goes yet. >> all right. let's get out of the beltway for a second here, kate, because we've got a poll today showing 62% of americans now favor raising the debt ceiling one way or another, either with or without debt reduction. got a block of senate republicans accepting higher revenues, ie taxes, as part of tax reduction. are these holdout house republicans becoming more isolated, and are they begin to feel the heat to compromise here? >> reporter: it's hard to say. we've talked to some very conservative republicans about that, and they stand very firmly in their belief that they do not think this a tax increase should be part of any debt deal because they don't think that it's good for the economy, and they say many of them were elected in 2010 really basically on this point, that they need to get the country's fiscal house in order and not continue spending, spending, spending, that they should be reduci
-- it has big tax increases in it and all the spending cuts will happen in the out years. well, how many times do politicians think they can pull that one over on the american people? >> reporter: the split among republicans made it difficult for party leaders to determine just what might pass the house. whatever it turns out to be, it still must be acceptable to senate democrats and ultimately to the president. this morning, the senate's majority leader democrat harry reid challenged house speaker john boehner to take matters in hand. >> right now, i'm at a point where we need to hear from the house of representatives. we've planned to go forward over here, but until we hear from the house all our work is for naught. i await word from the speaker. >> reporter: in the meantime, there's general agreement that translating the complex gang of six plan into legislation and votes before august second, is likely unrealistic. that could put the short-term emphasis back on a senate backup plan to let the president raise the debt ceiling on his own pending some final, long-term agreement. >> ifil
on a big deficit reduction plan that includes massive spending cuts, tax reform and entitlement reform, tax increases. so you can see here the clock is ticking and the end game here still very unclear. >> this thing just keeps on developing and you hear hopefulness and then schedules. you will keep us posted when you hear there's actually some kind of timeline we have to figure out whether we are going to have money to pay our bills on august 3rd or not. >> after two days of explosive hearings in the uk phone hacking scandal, relatives of 9/11 victims in the u.s. are now saying they will be meeting with attorney general eric holder soon. they asked for the meeting one-on-one since the fbi started investigating allegations that "news of the world" hacked the phones of survivors, victims and their families. the meeting has yet yet been set. >>> rupert murdoch is back in the united states. he and his wife returned to their new york home yesterday. there is a lot on rupert murdoch's plate. news corp. is facing an fbi investigation and at least two u.s. based lawsuits filed by shareholders. also
's population will be sweltering in a dangerous heat wave today. hot air and high humidity will make big cities along the i-95 corridor feel like a sauna. the national weather service says the heat wave may have contributed to 22 deaths already. >>> and london police are expanding their investigation into the phone hacking scandal. an official says it now involves newspapers beyond rupert murdoch's media empire including "the daily mail" and "daily mirror." the police task force has added 15 investigators, bringing the total working on the hacking scandal to 60. >>> nfl owners are meeting in atlanta today to vote on a tentative labor deal with players. the reported ten-year deal, if finalized, would divvy up the league's $9 billion in annual revenue. players were supposed to vote yesterday but never did, suggesting there's still a few details to work out. nfl fans say, enough already. >> 10% unemployment in the country, right? us poor folks scrap and scraping to get by. come on. it's billionaires against millionaires, right? can you not meet in the middle somewhere? >>> here's your chance to ta
quickly. that's still four or five years away and maybe deep space beyond. that's where the big questions are, whether we're going to follow through on that promise. >> you just described to us earlier how this is a record breaking crowd there at the kennedy space center. tell us what happened when the shuttle landed. >> for the first time in my coverage of the space shuttle landings, there was a huge round of applause as it landed. a lot of excitement. and there certainly is the sense of wow, this is really it. this is the very final time we're going to see this down. it's a little bit of a drag that it was predawn. it's really hard to see. usually see the shuttle approaching the runway because the lighting change on the runway lights being obscured by the shuttle coming in but then come flying behind us on the runway with a big parachute out dragging it down to a slower speed but certainly there was a lot of pride, i think, here watching this end of an era and, of course, you know, we had the big private commercial taxi service you mentioned, tom, in october, i believe, the big falcon l
or a sensation. any sense of that? >> the big story here, absolute absolutely. whether used as a mop. a ginger head mop. >> we'll have to leave it there. i'm matt miller in for dylan. "hardball" starting right now. >>> so what's the deal? let's play some "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm in for chris matthews tonight. leading off, deal or no deal. all day long there's been word that a deal between president obama and speaker john bane zer boehner is in the works to save the u.s. from default. pub lkly both sides are denying it. it's clear adults on both sides are trying to avoid default. how do you get to an agreement when pea tae tea parters are saying no deal with tax increases and democrats are saying, no deal without them? we crunched numbers and default would seem to affect almost every american home. >>> also, does michele bachmann have mi have migraines? may be debilitated for days at time or something we would have never mentioned about a male candidate? >>> how did an anti-american terrorist become so trusted by u.s. officials in afghanistan he was allowed close eno
for millionaires and big corporations is what republicans have called for. they need to meet us somewhere. >> thank you, congressman steve israel. >> thank you. >>> joining me now, "washington post's" chris, author of "the fix". a managing editor also. let's visit this grover norquist issue. i think on tuesday in an interview with your "washington post" editorial board, grover norquist, the man famous for his anti-tax pledge, said that not renewing the bush tax cuts would not violate his pledge. listen to some of that audio released. >> not continuing a tax cut is not technically a tax increase. >> stow does not violate the pledge. >> we wouldn't hold it that way. it would be a very bad thing to do. it would raise taxes from where they are today. >> who don't follow the inside baseball the way you and i eat, drink and sleep it. what is the significance of grover norquist saying that? >> for people who don't know, grover norquist since 1985 has run a group called americans for tax reform pap d.c.-based group that does a lot of thing. basically, to holded line on no tax increases for republicans. eve
this if there is a framework. they are pushing for something big. trils of dollars in deficit savings the course of ten years. reminder of the moving parts that a deal like that would require the next several days major spending cuts, tax reform, entitlement reform and if democrats in the white house were to get their way, tax increases. you can see that is pretty much a heavy lift and so you still have a lot of people looking to a more modest deal that the top democrat and republican in the senate, harry reid and mitchell mcconnell are trying to work out which would be more spending cuts and perhaps more modest and perhaps giving the president the unenviable position to have to increase the debtcele himself with a minority support from congress. >> brianna keilar, thanks. >>> government is scrambling to pay its bills here is something americans don't want to hear. billions of dollars in your tax money is being wasted in afghanistan or worse. a new federal audit says that some of that cash may be funding, are you ready for this? the same insurgency that is killing americans. chris lawrence is at the pentagon
're now at the president's big deal target, which we're not going to meet under the gang of six or any of the other constructs around here, cancel the social security tax holiday, borrow the money one more year, invest it in infrastructure, put millions to work, when those millions go to work, they'll be paying taxes, that'll reduce the deficit by about another quarter. we solved 3/4 of the problem without killing programs essential to the american people and without cutting taxes on the job creators. the gang of six is proposing that billionaires should see their taxes cut by about 25% or 30% that will help us balance the budget. time to get back to the real world and out of "alice in wonderland." the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the chair recognizes the gentleman from pennsylvania, mr. thompson, for five minutes. mr. tompson: thank you, mr. speaker. since 1947, every august, the little league baseball world series is held in pennsylvania within pennsylvania's fifth congressional district. each year, little league international recognizes little league gradua
in the big gallery. >> i noticed a lot of artists doing really site-specific work. >> this is a pile of balloons, something that is so familiar, like a child's balloon. in this proportion, suddenly, it becomes something out of a dream. >> or a nightmare. >> may be a nightmare. >> this one over here is even harder to figure out what the initial material is. >> this is made out of puffy paint. often, kids use it to decorate their clothes. she has made all these lines of paint. >> for the pieces we are looking at, is there a core of foam or something in the middle of these pieces that she built on top of? >> i'm not telling. >> ah, a secret. >> this silver is aluminum foil, crumbled of aluminum foil. her aesthetic is very much that quiet, japanese spatial thing that i really admire. their attention to the materiality of the things of the world. >> this is a nice juxtaposition you have going on right now. you have a more established artists alongside and emerging artists. is that something important to you as well? >> very important in this space, to have artists who really have not show
the chances of another big financial crisis and another big taxpayer bailout are lower now thanks to the law. president obama signed it a year ago today, as you mentioned. treasury secretary timothy geithner says the financial system is stronger by almost any measure now, but critics say consumers and taxpayers are still at risk. the law required the sec and other regular lay -- regulators to write 243 new rules but regulators have completed fewer than 50 of those. other critics say they don't want these new rules anyway. they are hurting innovation, economic growth and job creation, jenna. jenna: we talk about financial regulation, there's a slew of different changes, and it's easy to get a little wonky, peter, right? what are some of the changes that are happening today when it comes to our regulatory reform? is. >> reporter: hey, jenna, i love that o.k. with key stuff. jenna: i know you do. [laughter] >> reporter: sorry about that. you're right, today the confidential consumer protection bureau officially opens for business be, but it does not have a director yet, so its powers are are li
's been called a heat dome. we'll tell you where that is, it sits over a big portion of the country. stay cool. >> i'm hot and sweaty. >> it's like sitting in a sauna all day long. >> hot and tired. it makes you, you know, lose your energy quick. [ male annocer ] things seem better with travelocity's best price guarantee. our girl's an architect. our boy's a genius. we are awesome parents! biddly-boop. [ male announcer ] if you find a lower rate on a room you've booked, we won't just match it. we'll give you $50 towards your next trip. [ gnome ] it's go time. patti ann: minnesota's state government is back in business. democratic governor mark dayton signing a budget deal ending the neigh's longest state government shutdown in a decade. >> it destroyed minnesota's reservist standing for a state of responsible government and a balanced government and one that's not going to be hijacked by the tea party intransigence. patti ann: republicans have stood their ground on not raising taxes, but minnesota's budget deal relies on borrowing, so leaders on both sides of the isle concede -- aisle con
, actually, if they know there's a big deal behind it will be quite -- wouldn't they, john heilemann? >> i think so. the time is tough right now. listen to harry reid and mitch mcconnell who know how the senate works and how long it takes to do the following things, to reform medicare and tax reform. they are things that typically can take many months to get done. >> isn't it a surprise? it wasn't a surprise the show started at 6:00 a.m. on the east coast. it's no surprise we have a deadline. >> to build the legislation is not something that can happen in the span of four or five days. you can't. the key issue is what obama will be wanting to see is the outlines of a deal where he has a good assurance the outlines of the deal can get past once the meat is put on the bones. if that's the case and the markets see that, everything will be fine. whether it's a few days extension or a couple weeks, it's going to take a lot to get to that point. there's no consensus on the house side among house republicans in favor of what the gang of six is doing. as we saw in the film, the video, house democr
for celebration. >> after 30 years it was a hell of a ride! >> big applause from the nasa co-workers as several thousand showed up as the vehicle processing facility where "atlantis was" was rolled to and people spent two or three years focusing their lives and jobs on that particular shuttle mission. it is so much larger than just a team of astronauts that fly on board, and the nasa administrator, he was choked up today and he is a former astronaut. i was proud to be part of the program and will carry the cherished memories and experiences with me for the rest of my life. but i'm also ready to get on with the next big challenge. i want to send american astronauts where we have never been before, by focusing our resources on exploration, while leveraging the private sector support to take americans to the international space station. we will do it together. phil: a lot of questions remain as far as federal funding, how soon? do you replace a vehicle for the shuttle? and who much of a private-public partnership will evolve with nasa and other companies and getting humans into space. >>shepard: w
. that's a reason to switch. big savings -- it's a good look for you. [ blower whirring ] [blower stops] the safety was off. out there with a better way. now, that's progressive. >> shepard: breaking news now on fox news channel, and it looks like we have great news for fans of the nfl on fox and beyond. the nfl network, which is owned by the nfl is now reporting team owners have ratified a new collective bargaining agreement, an important step in ending the four month old lockout. the players' union still has to agree toot plan so a news conference is coming up in this hour. you can see they are setting up for it on the left-hand side of your screen. jonathan serrie is covering this for us in atlanta where team owners are meeting today. jonathan, what too we know. >> well, shep, you can see the media sacrum behind me. we are outside the room where the news is taking place. the nfl network reporting that the owners have voted on a collective bargaining agreement. of course, now this goes to the players who have yet to approve this originally. we thought they were going to approve condit
big comforter coming out of the replacement bag. here you can see it in its final configuration strapped down. it has straps that hold it into position. about the time they had it installed in this configuration, the thermal officer in the front room at mission control center stood up and turned around and said i can already see it starting to take effect. that's a very successful proje project. >> there were a lot of teams whose hard work all came in to play. a magnificent team of people. had to do it the hard way with ron and i, with ron and me traveling a lot, and not even in countries the same time together. they had to work hard. a well integrated plan put together. with all of the products and pieces that really came together. to figure out how to get that thing back. a whole lot of work by a lot of teams around the country, and really came together and made a big difference. >> the hatch is closed. ♪ i'm a rocket man ♪ rocket man >> good morning, atlantis. this is elton john. we wish you much success on your mission and huge thank you to all the men and women at nasa
for the hearts and minds of the people. >> big. there you go. >> the overriding goal of counterinsurgency is to make friends. you make friends with the people; you isolate the insurgents. go where the people are. go where the population is. go to the population centers. get in among the people, protect the people, isolate the insurgents. >> narrator: but according to those close to the military command, counterinsurgency also involves hunting down the enemy. ( shouting ) >> clear. >> let's go, let's go, let's go! >> counterinsurgency doctrine believes in killing people. it just believes in killing the right people. and what's happened over the past five years is we've gotten far, far better at correlating human intelligence and signals intelligence to paint a very tight, coherent picture of who the enemy is and where the enemy hangs his hat. and we've gotten better at using precision firepower to give those people very, very bad days. ( glass breaking ) and i really think that this is redefining what counterinsurgency means in the 21st century. ( explosion ) >> narrator: overseeing the co
essentially go to another country and export through that country, put on, for example, "made in korea" -- big implications with these trade agreements -- and end up shipping those goods to the united states. and senator blunt and his constituents have made the correct point that that's, again, taking away jobs from middle-class folks. but we have got to get back here on the floor of the united states senate to the issue of jobs. that's the most important question for our constituents, madam president. staff told me on the way over here that a recent survey of businesses cites again their number-one concern, that sales are going down in their stores. and i think everybody here in the senate knows you can often go to a store on a weekend or an evening and you see hardly anybody there because middle-class people are very worried about what's ahead and simply because of these economic times do not have the money to go in and buy those goods and arrange for those services that in an economy that requires they be in the marketplace, they simply don't have the resources for it. so i hope my colleagu
